Cruise Emissions

Monday 15 January 2018

The minister’s response to my latest questions in Parliament about shore power for cruise ships simply refers to the Port Authority website HERE. The Port Authority website has old information and notes pollution sometimes exceeds limits at White Bay, and no details about the Overseas Passenger Terminal. There is no update on emission reduction plans since the May 2017 report, which does not support shore power, see HERE.

You can report air and noise pollution from cruise ships to the Port Authority: telephone 9296 4962 or
